I found a little piece of heaven when I found Made in Rome Bed and Breakfast. I was drawn to it because of the rooftop. I love rooftops but I had no idea how beautiful this rooftop actually was until I saw it in person. It had a direct view of the Colosseum.
You can feel the energy of Rome watching the tourist and people going in and out of the restaurants. It was amazing.
Let me start from the beginning. After my unfortunate experience with the cab drivers I was greeted by the owner of the b&b, Max. He was warm, welcoming and very cute. He helped me up the stairs with my bags. There was an elevator but it was very tiny. In the movie Eat Prey Love, she actually is in Rome and it shows the same type of elevator. I think it’s safe to say it’s the smallest elevator in the world.
My room was very cozy. It had a balcony with stairs that lead to the rooftop. It was perfect!
The wifi was fast which is always a plus when traveling. Max told me about a restaurant that makes it’s own pasta from scratch and a place to get tiramisu that will make you cry. I didn’t actually find the tiramisu place because I got lost walking around but I smile when I think about how Max described it.
The location of the B&B was perfect. I walked to the Colosseum and there were plenty of great restaurants also in walking distance. I ate at a place named Pasta Chef.
Of course I indulged in some pasta completely gilt free because carbs outside of the US don’t count.
Honestly, my apple watch said I took some where around 20 thousands steps per day walking around Italy. So I walked off all of the pasta I ate.
I found the perfect place to have a glass of wine. Oppio Caffe had a great ambiance with a direct view of the Colosseum. I love Italian cafes with outdoor seating. I chatted with a local who didn’t speak any English. I don’t speak Italian so it was entertaining for us to attempt to teach each other words. I tried some type dessert even though I really wanted the tiramisu that was going to make me cry.
I ended the day with some awesome splits in front of the Colosseum.
If you follow me on social media you know I love splits, especially in front of famous monuments.
Made in Rome B&B was everything I expected it to be and more. I highly recommended it to anyone visiting Rome that wants to tour the Colosseum. My last stop in Italy was a contemporary hotel and visiting a place called Trastevere. Be sure to subscribe so you don’t miss my next post about that!
